Well I for one will be waiting to hear on how that turns out

Guys, I have to admit, after reading through this thread, I must say that I have been spreading some serious misinformation that I am quite ashamed of...

Clearly, when I referred to my prose as a metaphor, I should have used simile instead, because the comparison was created by the "like a voluptuous woman" line. Simile.



Drove the car today some more to try out the new roll bar (and door bar) installation. I am still really liking the clutch. Between that and the chassis stiffening from the roll bar/door bar combo (very noticeable difference) the car feels really tight now. I'm still getting used to the quick engagement but it is really no big deal. I have not stalled the car once.

I'll be driving it daily again now that the car is back together and will report back in a few weeks, or when the transmission blows up, whichever comes first. Place your bets!

The 6 is stronger. If you shift a 5-speed hard with a pucked clutch, you WILL break it.

Two weeks later and I am still liking it. No transmission explosions yet though I am taking it easy on the shifting. I may need to adjust the clutch a bit to move up the engagement point since the shifting is a little stiff.

Just give it time. One solid 2-3 shift and KABLAMMO. I like being able to flatshift my 2-3s and not give a ****.

Resurrected from the dead. At the OP, how do you feel about that clutch now?

Are you serious? Can always PM him.

Send the messenger pigeon, it looks like OP hasn't made a post since Nov 2014.

Anyhow, I have a Competition Clutch sprung 6puck and enjoy it. My flywheel didn't look to happy though

Yea, i'm serious.

Pm does not shed visibility for others who may be intersted in knowning the outcome as well.

OP hasnt made a post since late 2014? And your point is?

Thanks for your feedback.

It happens. Did he happen to part out his experience with the clutch as well?
